Hello dear friends, supporters and loyal players,
sadly Golden Orb will no longer create and publish games.
It was an adventurous journey full of really great ups but also very sad downs.
The downs are forcing us to shut down our company, yet on the bright side we will stay creative in other ways.
Thank you all for your support and love!
About the Game
A hand-drawn nerdventure made with lots of retro-love – and some fairy dust.
Interested in the open hero position? Great! That completes the party for a nice game of D&D (“Dice & Doom”, that is):
Siebenstreich’s Nerdventure is an upbeat 2D adventure game, pioneering the fantastic genre of pop culture fairytales. Look forward to witty dialog, puzzling puzzles (yep, sorry, pun intended), an amazing soundtrack as well as lovingly hand-drawn artwork and animations.
While your party of unlikely heroes sets out to rescue a realm in distress, you’ll take cooking lessons with Mr. & Mr. Giant, outsmart a gang of flies and prove yourself in the improvised game shows hosted by the guerilla unicorn Sylvester Stallione. Among other things. And, rumor has it, the fabled throne Up’Zhykling might be up for grabs as well. Give a green thumbs up and save Mirrormore!

…is probably the first game to feature a truly adorable, vegan carnivorous plant
